Breast Augmentation / Breast Implant Surgery in Bangkok, Thailand
Breast augmentation is a common procedure performed by plastic surgeons, using breast implants placed sub-muscularly via an incision under the breast or around the areola. Although the technique is mostly the same as a mammoplasty augmentation in genetic women, there are important anatomical differences between male and female chests that guide modification for MTF transsexual. Compared to non-transgender women, the breast envelope of the MTF has been often undeveloped and tight so there may be less lipomatous tissue. The multiple techniques, knowledge of the surgeon is becoming the most important. For optimal results of feminizing breast augmentation, and to facilitate the choice of the technique best suited for each individual needs, the patient should be aware that implants cannot perfectly imitate adult breast. Particularly in the age-related changes seen on non-transgender women and cleavage between the breasts is very difficult to create.

2. Peri-areola incision
3. Sub-mammary incision
Breast implants available:
1. Texture gel filled prosthesis
2. Smooth gel filled prosthesis
3. Smooth saline pre-filled prosthesis
4. Smooth saline filled adjustable prosthesis
Placement of breast implant
Your implants will be placed either under or over your pectoral muscle depending on several factors including the size of your breast, skin quality, and your breast shape.
The position of the implant will have been decided prior to surgery between you and your surgeon at your consultations.
Breast implants placed under the muscle tend to give a slightly more natural upper ‘pole’ of the breast and possibly a lower incidence of capsular contracture (scar tissue that can develop around an implant and cause the breast to feel hard)
1. Beneath breast tissue (Subglandular pocket)
2. Under the chest muscle muscle (Subpectoral plane)
3. Partly under the muscle, partly under breast tissue (Dual plane )
